Simon Says..........Shake It!


Happy July, and welcome to our first challenge of the month at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

We have a fun theme for you this week - confetti packets or shaker cards!  The design team are all using Simon exclusives, and we'd love to see you using some, too, but it's not necessary to enter.  I learned how to make shaker cards earlier this spring, (using Scotch double-sided foam tape) and have loved the process, so I've made 2 cards for you.

My first card uses a butterfly washi tape to border my shaker, which is filled with some Simon's Tiny Flower sequins, a few Pretty Pink Posh Springtime sequins, and some clear ones:

I also used cut 2 Leanna butterflies and secured them to the shaker packet with tiny green clothespins.  Since there wasn't a good space to add a sentiment, I left the front alone.  Here's the inside of my card, using a sentiment from Simon's Flower Friend stamp set, another Leanna butterfly and a tiny pink flower sequin:

My 2nd card uses a Simon sentiment from Happy Every Day stamped in Audrey Blue ink inside my shaker, along with more of those cute tiny flower sequins.  I stamped and die-cut some of  Whimsical Flowers for the corner, centered with a button.
